I'm actually disappointed in both as OEM Accessories. The Splash Guards are too large, but functional. The Side Steps are too small, and not very functional. I wish the splash guards weren't quite so large and square (more rounded edges). The pads on the step bars need to be as wide as the tube. They aren't so bad once you get used to them. I wish I would have waited for the Romik boards, but my kids needed something.
The splash guards and running boards on my previous Aspen were much better.
